Born on 22nd October 1960, Ponty Chadha was a determined and enthusiastic being. In his young age, he became the man behind the expansion of his family business in Pirumdara, Gajraula, Basturi and Badaunia regions.

Gurdeep Singh Chadha aka Ponty Chadha (22 October 1960 – 17 November 2012) established one of the most elaborate business conglomerates in India that grew on to be a 6000-crore empire by 2012 under the flagship banner ‘Wave’. His life is one of the most high-profile ‘rags-to-riches’ stories of converting roadblocks into strengths.

Ponty established Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan in July 1999, a non-profit special education institution in Noida with the mission to educate and prepare special children to achieve physical, social and financial independence to the best of their abilities.

The Group further expanded its outreach by founding the non-profit organisation, Ponty Chadha Foundation (PCF). PCF works for social equilibrium and unrestrained access to food and medical aid across the country.
